that in the october job report issued the first week in november, that might help mr. romney, but it is so close that friday to the following tuesday, i don't think it's going to register in people's minds if it ticks up a couple tenths of a percent. it has to be dramatic, and i don't see that happening. >> the democrats are going to get george soros to get people to stay on the sidelines for the election, so we'll be all good. >> we should make krystal the head of the dnc. up next mitt romney courting the 47%? does he think people have amnesia? the spin cycle is next as we roll on for friday, october 5th.

to draw them into my campaign. >> but last night, a complete about face. now mr. romney is denouncing those remarks. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer questions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. and in this case i said something that is just completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. and that's been demonstrated throughout my life. and this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president, it will be about helping the 100%. >> cnn political editor paul steinhauser is here. we also have seen romney embrace the same massachusetts health care reforms he's previously shunned and he's doing that before some conservative audiences. is he simply just trying to move to the middle with just 32 days before the election? >> yeah, and maybe people are saying the same thing about the debate performance from mitt romney the other night in denver, that his position seemed to be shifting a little bit. on this, on the specific comment you ju

and applause] rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out big bird is deserving of considerable public attention. upon further investigation, it appears the last thing the president should be doing is to minimize what's happening to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to help him with the numbers, and the numbers are troubling. on a day in which the congressional budget office announced the 2012 budget deficit came in at $11 trillion for a fourth straight year, turns out our out of control spending includes roughly $450 million given every year to the corporation for public broadcasting, $8 million of that going to, that's right, sesame workshop and big bird. it appears easy to dismiss millions of dollars when the government faces trillion of dollars in debt. the left may be cute with
